Libeccio - Day 3 (26/11) Blog

In this edition:  glasnost sailing style,guilty pleasures, the Hobit?   Last night was a busy one for each of ourwatches- we run 3 hours during the evening: 19:00 – 22:00; 22:00 – 01:00; 01:00– 04:00 and 04:00 – 07:00, thereafter each watch is 4 hours. In any event, itwas an entertaining evening—that, is if you don’t get out very often.  Notsurprisingly, we aren’t right now.   On Mike’s watch, he had the pleasure offollowing the attempts of one of our fellow ARC-ees? ARC-ers? ARC-ists? to let acargo ship know that he was directly in line, about 45 mins from the cargo ship,that he was sailing and could the cargo ship kindly make a slight adjustment toavoid a fender bender, where the sail boat would lose big time. Displaying thepatience of someone knowing they had much. read more...

OOROO1 - Parasailing on Day 4

Day4 and the Parasail has been up for 48 hours giving us about 7.5 knots on averagein inconsistent winds averaging 15 knots, average 2m swell and heading southwest looking for the trade winds and maximizing comfort, NOT speed. No yachts insight since yesterday evening and only one tanker to deal with. Fishing line outtoday with the hardhead 6” squidgy and a teaser. Seen dolphins and whales and afew shearwater birds. Not much sun to recharge the solar panels, overcast nearlyall day so the Genset has had to do a bit of work.  Only one spewer onboard but the captain is happy as he gets to eat the extra tucker. More food foreverybody. Banana stork ripening fast so the captain needs to eat about 10 aday. Could be a banana cake coming on soon. Took our first water samples for. read more...

Profile - profile

Day one done, nothing much to report aside from of course on chinese gybe,one broken kicker, one flying fish assault on the skipper, several schools ofdolphns and a shark. oh and  a claimed sighting of a polar bear(Nicola).   So far so good with the sailing covering over 200 miles and already turnedwest. Almost there really.   Happy profile crew.    Day 2.5, we think (time’s a mystery already, we’re living by the watchsystem). The polar bears haven’t been seen again, but the fishing lines are outand we await our fresher than fresh sushi (come on you swanky Londoners, beatthat!). As stomachs settle from sea sickness, we’ve a new enemy; the commoncold. 4 down. Odds on the rest get it. But we’re sleeping, we’re watching, we’recooking and eating, and above all, we’re. read more...

El Mundo - 27/11 - Oyster Feet healing.....

Some good steady sailing over the last 24 hours,covering 180 miles. Changed back to a starboard reach early yesterday and havehad pretty good wind ever since, though some variable patches. Bringing the polein, the inboard end tripped, detaching itself from the mast, so we were dancingaround on the foredeck for a while with the weight of the pole but all was fineand we secured the release catch to prevent that recurring. The faulty sump float switch was replaced, sothat's all working again too. Now we are 3 days out, the 'Oyster Feet'are finally starting to heal. This is a condition brought on by catchingnumerous deck fittings inside your little toe. The first time you do it, ithurts....by the time you have done it several times to the same toe, the painincreases. read more...

Bluewater Mooney - 2. Tag

Wir haben heute ein Etmal (zurück gelegte Strecke in 24 Stunden) von 183 NM. Wie erwartet - 200 NM und mehr sind und bleiben leider Highlights!Alle an Bord haben sich gut eingelebt.Nach einer recht nervenaufreibenden Nacht mit viel Schwachwind und etlichen Kurswechseln haben wir nun ein Gebiet mit recht gutem Wind erreicht. Wir laufen zurzeit Kurs Richtung St Lucia mit 7,5 - 9 Knoten. Aber unterwegs kann sich noch viel ändern!Bisher haben wir kaum technische Ausfälle. Lediglich die Dreifarbenlaterne im Top macht Probleme - am Bussystem kann es nicht liegen, denn wenn die Kupplung im Mastfuß geöffnet wird, tritt der Kurzschluss nicht mehr auf. Also Vermutlich nur die LED - Birne - mal sehen ob die aus unserem Fundus passt. Haben dazu bei HR Parts angefragt um die Partnummer zu bekommen.. read more...

Up at 6:25 PM. Packed two bags for safari to Lalibela Game Reserve 1 hour from Port Elizabeth. Breakfast at 8:45 AM: eggs, potato, chilled apricot halves and bread. After giving out phone numbers and our email address to Ghost to contact us in case of an emergency, we departed the Algoa Yacht Club Marina at 10:28 AM in a van sent to us by the reserve. Besides Joel, Jeanine and myself; Vlado and Jack from Civetta II were joining us.We arrived at the Lalibela Game Reserve at 11:32 AM.

Vagaris - Chance encounter on the Ocean

When sailing across even the vast Atlantic Ocean it would be rueful not to keep a close watch for other ships. Either by eye, by radar or by AIS we can look out for yachts and ships and check if we have to alter course to avoid a collision. The AIS (Automatic Identification System) uses VHF radio signals to transmit and receive information about each boat so when we spot another vessel we can check its size, speed, name and how likely it is to hit us!So another large ship appears on the horizon heading our way and a quick look at the AIS reveals it as the Esperanza. Umm.....that's a familiar name, I wonder if that is who I think it is? A view through the binoculars confirms my suspicion. There is that characteristic rainbow on the bow and the dark green hull - it is indeed the Greenpeace. read more...

Blue Waves - Dzien 2 - Mahi mahi, spinaker i H2O

Powietrze jest bardzo miękie i żeśkie na północnym atlantyku. Do tego stopnia że obawiam się że nie do końca może mi smakować to w Sopocie po powrocie do domu. Z tego potencjalnie jest szansa na wielki problem bo ja jestem dość uparty i jak zdecyduje się że już go nie lubie to jestem  w kropce. Jak wiemy bez powietrza nie jesteśmy w stanie przeżyć. Tak samo z resztą bez słynnego H2O czyli popularnie mówiąc wody. I tu wracamy na pokład Blue Waves. Dziś przy prawie pustych zbiornikach zepsuła się nam odsalarka. Żona kazała mi przed wyjazdem opanować rużne sztuki zrobienia odwróconej osmozy w warunkach polowych, a ja byłem sobą i teraz polak mądry po szkodzię. Generalnie wody zdatnej do picia mamy 285 litrów na ośmiu panów. To daje nam 1,5l wody do picia i gotowania posiłków. Dziennie. read more...

Sojourner - Day three

Hi Folks,Sailing conditions have improved so that we have been maintaining 6+ knots mostly directly toward our destination.Way too soon to have a meaningful ETA but it looks much better than the horrid 12/21 shown earlier.Things that broke:The line in the whisker pole either came unfastened internally or frayed through.It will not stay extended without that line working. We have some ideas for jerry rigging something but this is the third time this combined trip that it failed. May need a new whisker pole at some point. Now we are sailing nicely with a reefed main and a full headsail.We will be able to use a spinnaker soon,, I hope, but with higher wind speeds going down wind, having a wing on wing configurationwould give us the best speed. The boat rolls constantly and with that. read more...

Helen - Day 3 - The tale of two Turtles

Tom and Tina Turtle were swimming well north of the ARC fleet.Tom was spotted first with a taciturn look on his face. When had he seen Tina last? Tina was at 30*27'N, 17*33'W when suddenly the bow wave of Yacht Helen caught her by surprise and rolled her over.She struggled, thought of Tom and with a good righting moment managed to turn turtle and swim away before Helen had disappeared.PS No turtles were hurt in the making of this story.

GarliX - Mittendrin - "nur" noch 900 Seemeilen

Fragt ein Boot der ARC Flotte die SY GARLIX von der ARC Flotte: "Na - wie war die Überfahrt?" antwortet die GARLIX: "squallig….sie war squallig.. und meine Crew und ich finden das blöd." Kaum hatten wir mal einen Tag, an dem wir uns von diesen ständigen Squalls erholen konnten - da erleben wir wieder eines dieser Wetterspiele. Vor allem haben wir gelernt… sie "schlagen" auch seitlich aus. Vorgestern früh locke ich Jens zum Sonnenaufgang raus, um den Tag zu begrüßen, da zieht "urschwarz" solch eine Wand von hinten auf. Aber - sie zieht seitlich weg. Neben uns ist ein Katamaran und wir bedauern ihn und seine Crew sehr. Setzen uns in die Pflicht und wollen das Schauspiel beobachten.

Easy Rider - ...Captain's Log....Day 7

Tuesday was an eventful day!! It started slowly with little wind & by 0900 hrs we had already tried three different sail plans to help our speed & course.....largely to no avail. By lunch time everything had improved & we were bowling along on a good course. We estimated we would reach the half way point by 1930 hrs, so the champoo went into the fridge & our celebratory, half way steaks came out of the freezer! Dinner was exellent......never have rib eye steaks been bettered!!!!!During the course of the day we sailed through several squalls.Mid afternoon we saw one looming up behind us, we reefed the main sail put on waterproofs & life jackets......we were ready!!The wind increased by 5 or 6 knots, light rain for a few minutes & then it was all over.

Sandvita - Dag 1-3

Fantatisk start från Grand Canaria tillsamans medett antal imponerande båtar av växlande storlek. Avsked med orkester hurrande människor och viftande flaggor kändes helt rätt. En högljudd spanjor med kraftig högtalare gav varje båt ett omnämnande och ett litet lycka till på färden. Spänningen var påtaglig då vi tvingats skjuta på starten en dag. Vädret varvid tillfället mer lämpat för delfiner och stormfåglar. Ett helt nytt storsegel från den gode kamraten Lundh på Lund Sails väntade förväntansfult på att skickas till väders. Trängseln var omfattande och brådskan att komma iväg påtaglig. Storen åkte upp med hjälp av några rappa mannar och under uppsikt av den kolungne Kapten Lasse.

Two days into ARC 2014 and it has already proven the phrase the ocean is never the same twice.We started from Las Palmas at 10.30 on Monday with a fast reach South to make the bottom of the island, all eyes were on the tracks of the fastest boats to see if they found a short cut through the potential wind shadows that can effect the area.We were recording 14 knots of boat speed as we screamed toward the area keeping fingers crossed for a quick route through and out into open ocean.This is where it became tricky, there were yacht almost becalmed to both the north and south of us as we watched on the radar and worked to tread our way past.All was going perfectly until the last mile when we hit a big wind hole, the second bad news was this wind hole was where the seas funnelling between. read more...

Purrr-fect - Leg Two- dsy 7: Steady sailing rig

At first light this morning, we gibed our double headsail rig to stay closer to the great circle route course. The wind had shifted about 25 degrees earlier so we decided to do all the work to gibe. This involves all 3 of us to do it best. First we furl in the jib and leave the whisker pole up. Next we drop the loose footed jib and rerun all 4 of the lines to the other side of the boat. Next we move the whisker pole to the other side of the boat by lowering and moving the topping lift, and finally connecting new lines for after and fore guys The sheets (both inboard and outboard) lines to the furling jib are run next, and the outboard one is run through the end of the whisker pole. Finally we hoist the loose footed jib and unfurl the furling jib. And we have a steady sail configuration. read more...

Scarlet Oyster - blog day 2

Hi All,Been a fairly busy 2 days since we started the ARC2014, the start went well for us and we were chuffed to be the first yacht over the start line! Leopard 3 soon took over the front running however!We enjoyed a fresh run down the side of Gran Canaria, as the wind speed built to over 30 kn in the acceleration zone we elected to get the kite down to save any costly breakages in sight of the start, a few brave crewspersevered with spinnakers however, Xanadu came storming past us, looking under control but well loaded up!The wind shadow came into play we tried to stay to the east of it, but eventually got sucked in just before dark, my thinking was to stay on the East as the wind rotated to the NE and then find our way through whilst being well south of the island, the 0400 positions. read more...

Rüdigers Zufriedenheit noch größer seit klar ist: Wir liegen ziemlich gut im Feld. Nils findet dank starker Böen in den Schapps Brillen wieder, von denen er gar nicht wusste, dass er sie dabei hat.

We're still not completely alone out here as wehave 2 other boats on the horizon next to us so obviously this brings out thecompetitive side in everyone.
